Pollen levels will be high through the weekend with mainly dry weather expected.

The next cold front will move into Central Florida early in the workweek. With it comes the rain that will help bring pollen levels down.

Sunday starts out sunny, but as evening approaches, southerly winds increase the moisture and clouds, and there could be a chance of rain overnight, News 6 meteorologist Danny Treanor said.

"Most of the day looks good, with temps in the 80s," Treanor said. "The chance of rain Sunday night is 40 percent. Also, rip current threats remain high for Sunday."

Monday will be a rain day, and the afternoon could see some thunderstorms. This will be a stalled system that will cause rainy conditions to continue into Tuesday.

Sunshine returns by Wednesday and rain returns by Friday, according to Treanor.
